“I am the way.”
1. Jesus is the way to God;
Jesus is the way to bliss;
In this way the church has trod,
Down from Adam’s day to this.
2. Jesus is the living way;
All beside to ruin lead;
They are safe, and only they,
Who are one in Christ their Head.
3. Jesus is a holy way;
Leads to endless joys above;
Holy men, and only they,
Walk in this blest way of love.
4. Jesus is the narrow way;
Hagarenes have here no room;
Sons, and only sons are they,
Who can travel this way home.
5. Jesus is a humble way;
Pride and self must be brought down;
Nothing like a beast of prey
Ever can in this way run.
6. Jesus is the way of strength;
Yet the strong this way can’t come;
And the Lord will prove at length,
Weaklings have the victory won.
7. Jesus is the way of peace,
Paved from end to end with love;
Yes, this way abounds with grace,
And the needy it approve.
8. All a helpless soul can need,
All a faithful God can give,
In this way is to be had;
Here the hungry eat and live.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
